Note from Delish:

This is one of my favorite recipe. Growing up on Iloilo City, paksiw and pinamalhan is a very common recipe. And to make it even more sumptuous, another step is required, and that is frying.

With this recipe, I added quite a few spices to make the paksiw even tastier. It would also taste great if you fry it crisp and brown. You can use other dips if you want to.

If you have further questions about this recipe, drop me a message. I’ll get bak to you as soon as I can.
